The public is invited to join us for the grand opening and tour of the new RCC High Tech Center on the RCC Table Rock Campus at 7800 Pacific Ave. in White City on Sept. 20, 2018 from 1 to 3 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. The event is open to the public and all RCC faculty and staff.

The $4.2 million, 11,800-square-foot center will be a regional cornerstone for high technology training in manufacturing/engineering, welding, mechatronics and other advanced skills.

Students will begin classes in the new facility on Monday, Sept. 24.

The flexible space is designed to promote skills-based learning with the newest technology. It also contains a “makerspace” that will facilitate collaborative learning among students, the community and business partners.

The High Tech Center was made possible by the voters of Jackson and Josephine counties when they passed a $20 million bond in 2016. Additional funding was provided by a U.S. Economic Development Administration grant, the Morris Family Foundation, the Meyer Memorial Trust, Boise Cascade, Bill Thorndike and Medford Fabrication, Mary and Ted Warrick, Patsy Smullin, Rough & Ready Lumber Company, Jackson County and other donations to the RCC Foundation from employees of Rogue Community College.

Our faculty and staff have worked with our industry partners to design a facility that will challenge students in an environment similar to the one they will have in the workplace. We want to ensure that our programs are state-of-the-art and meet the needs of our students and local employers.

We hope to see you there!
